This is not your usual “Once Upon a Time.” Classic? No. Wild? Yes! To start with, it’s a two-person play. Do the math. Snow White and the Seven Dwarves? Two fabulous, whip-smart, super-fast actors play Snow White, the huntsman, the prince, and all seven dwarves! And it’s funny. Really, really funny. So expect the unexpected in this fabulous fairy tale with a (spoiler alert) you-won’t-see-it-coming twist.


Things to know about the show

  • This show is performed by two adult actors who portray all 14 characters, sometimes at the same time or switching mid-sentence! Actors use costumes and props to change characters at the drop of a hat.
  • The show is performed on a super-thrust stage, with the audience surrounding three-quarters o­­­­­f the set. Director Greg Banks chose this layout so the audience could see each other engaging and reacting to the story!
  • This show closely follows the Brothers’ Grimm fairy tale, and contains some moments that may frighten young children, such as Snow White’s flight from the Huntsman through the woods.

Snow White at Children's Theatre Company

“A playful take on a Grimm tale…a rollicking funny treat.”

Snow White at Children's Theatre Company

“This “Snow White” succeeds in the way those old Bugs Bunny cartoons used to: It’s funny and musical and fast-paced and made for kids, but shot-through with grown-up sensibilities.”

Snow White at Children's Theatre Company

“The script is full of knock-knock jokes and other age-appropriate hilarity. It’s also smart enough for grown-ups to appreciate.”
